Here in the UK we've been having a very wet May, but fortunately with the occasional sunny spell and hence lots of rainbows... Lyra (age 2 1/2) has been very interested in them and has been singing the 'rainbow song' lots. When we were stuck inside painting a couple of weeks ago (too rainy to go out!) she copied a painting I did of a rainbow. She asked me to 'do her one too', so I drew the outer arch in pencil and then she did the painting, copying the colour order I was doing. I was so proud, and the original is now framed and has pride of place in our gallery in our living room. I especially love that when she had finished copying me she felt the rainbow really needed an extra pink stripe underneath, as you can't have enough pink.... and also that her finger prints are in it, so this one is really *just for us*. However as I've not had tme to do anything hand drawn of my own I'm entering it in the hand drawn contest.
I think my lovely girl needs a new summer skirt for when the sun finally comes out!
